AJA Cion- Let it Go
How would you feel if you always, wherever whenever, would hear the same song?
Me and Maarten de Vries made the short film "Let it Go" about a man who couldn't go out on the street without hearing the Disney classic "Let it Go". We did that with the help of friends, in one day and with a very special camera: the AJA Cion. The film was shot in 4K and can only be seen in full resolution on YouTube. (Too good for an ordinary TV.)
Aja provided the camera to test it, and we learned a lot. It's a great camera when everything is lit well, you really don't need any kind of Log then. But if the light is low, the camera (and DoP) struggles. It is a good camera, but we think that to compete in 2016 you need a great camera even if the light is low.
Of course, everyone in the film has a starring role, but we think there are still many sequels are in the offing for the Dubstep Dwarf (Ritzo Cate).
We made the film mainly because it's so fun to make movies with friends. But we wouldn't mind if it would provoke some thoughts on all the (commercial) stimuli we're subject to day in and out.
What do you think about the AJA Cion?
